Alternate high school credentials (Tier 2). Each of the following has separate MEPCOM Integrated Resource System and Recruit Quota System (REQUEST) codes
Test-based equivalency diploma (GED)(ED LVL code E). Enter years completed followed by general education development-high school graduate (GEDH), a diploma or certificate of general education diploma (GED), or other testbased high school equivalency diploma. This includes statewide testing programs such as the California High School Proficiency Examination (CHSPE), whereby an examinee may earn a certificate of competency or proficiency. A state or locally issued secondary school diploma obtained solely on the basis of such equivalency testing is not to be considered a high school diploma.
(4) Distance learning school diploma (ED LVL code 7). A secondary school diploma or certificate
awarded upon completion of correspondence school course work, home study, Internet, or
distance learning program, regardless of whether the diploma was issued by a
correspondence school, a state, or a secondary or postsecondary educational institution. This
is considered an alternate high school credential.
U.S. Army Regulation 601-210
The first two year of the program were experimental and after the first two years our focus changed and thus the program changed and began to grow.
Subject:PIMS Reporting Guidance for School Districts with a Cyber School Program
If you are a School District that offers a Cyber program, please report the students enrolled in your District, but taking these online programs (either in full or for specific courses), in the school where they would have been served if they were in the actual school building. Think of these students as being virtually in a seat at your school.
These students do belong in your October 1 Student Snapshot template.
This is not to be confused with students attending a Cyber Charter School that has their own AUN and reports their students to PIMS.
Please note, this email has been sent to all PIMS Administrators and Approvers in McKeesport Area SD.
